YARRA ARTS PROJECT BUBBLE FACADE

Melbourne, VIC

CLIENT: Alfasi Design & Drafting Pty Ltd

VALUE: $120 million

The Yarra Arts Project involves the development of two new arts facilities in Melbourne's Southbank arts and cultural precinct.  The develop-ment incorporates a world class 1000 seat Recital Hall, and a permanent 500 seat home for the Melbourne Theatre Company.

Baigents Pty Ltd were engaged by Alfasi to complete the structural steel shop- detailing of the feature "Bubble Facade" to the development.  The facade was detailed in modular construction to ease both shop fabrication and on-site erection.  The shop detailing was completed using Tekla Structures 3-D software.
